Dilbert rocks

I still smile when I hear about “bug bounties” – and I always think back to this Dilbert cartoon from a long, long, long time ago.


Scott Adams – just spot on. This was on my wall at Novell for many years.


Played Botanicula tonight with the kids. It’s the follow up to Machinarium – also known as The Robot Game – which we’ve loved forever.

Charming with lovely music – and some nice puzzles.


Raspberry Pi

Finally it arrived. Unboxed; find all of the bits needed (Micro USB power supply, USB keyboard, 2GB SD card); download the beta bits; boot and it worked.


I’ve not done anything beyond this – just checking the darn thing worked.

Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate

The process and change control for the build/rebuild is pretty straight-forward now.

Updated the main archive server from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate. Looks great – some nice features – and it seems to be faster than the previous version.

Also this blog is hosted as a SUSE Linux web server running on top of Hyper-V on top of Windows Server 2012 RC. Performance is solid. No issues to date.
